Traverse City Publisher Resigns

By: E&P Staff

The Publisher of the Traverse City Record-Eagle in Michigan has resigned. Ann Reed, 55, did not make a statement about the move.

According to the Record-Eagle, Henry Bird, vice president of the Midwest Division of Community Newspaper Holdings, Inc., told the paper, “I will personally miss Ann as she is a marvelous individual. She has been an extremely important part of this newspaper and this community for the past several years.”

CNHI bought the Record-Eagle from Ottaway Newspapers (a division of Dow Jones & Co.) in late 2006.

Reed started her career in the classified advertising sales department at the Record-Eagle before moving to San Diego to work for Southcoast Newspapers. She returned to the Record-Eagle in 1999 as the paper’s advertising director. She was named president and publisher in May 2006 as the newspaper’s first female chief.

CNHI is searching for Reed’s successor.
